ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has given CACI International Inc. prime contracts to support encrypted and open communications for deployed troops and command centers.
The two awards for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) are worth a combined total of $237 million, the company said.
Work under the contracts for in-theater support of Army and Marine forces includes comprehensive fielding, sustainment, and maintenance of satellite terminals. About 1,000 terminals are deployed in the WIN-T network, providing secure beyond-line-of-sight communications and access to tactical and strategic networks.
"This new work to support the Army's Warfighter Information Network–Tactical offers CACI the opportunity to ensure that the deployed forces' satellite communications remain highly reliable, in support of their vital missions," said John Mengucci, CACI's chief operating officer and president of U.S. Operations. "We're pleased to deliver another essential service to expand our support for this valued customer."
